Meet the latest additions to our household, a trio of Rhode Island Red chooks,
Ginger, Marmalade and Lacey.

Quite recently I had arrived home one afternoon to find Cricket (border collie pup) and four of the  neighbors chooks in our front yard...........(unharmed and quite happily pecking around).
Other days, when I couldn't find Cricket at home, she would be next door (another neighbor) watching their chooks. 
......So now she has her own chooks to look after (and it gives her something to do when we are not home). 

She is doing a very good job.

I'm sure cricket is very happy now she has her own flock to mind. We knew a border collie who just loved hanging out with their chooks. It gives them purpose in life.
